Can you believe that A-block is coming to an end? Neither can we! There are a few important reminders before Fall Break begins. Make sure you are prepared for your last week of class. Once your projects are complete, document your work, clean up your space, and store your supplies. We do not provide storage space, but it is important that you keep your projects if possible for your final review at the end of the semester. We are talking high-quality images here, folks, not camera phone photos.
Additionally, next Wednesday we will NOT be meeting as regularly scheduled. Get caught up on projects, sleep in, or work on final papers.
We’ll post more details soon about B-Block!
Here are a few photos from our session last Wednesday. We have tons more photos on our Flickr, so check them out as well. And if you’re dying to do more Jane Fonda workouts and drawings, they’re available on Youtube here.
On Wednesdays we meet as a whole group for activities, lectures, you name it. For tomorrow’s class we will be meeting in the Harder Hall Studio at 9am to wrap your wheel barrows and store them in the Harder Hall courtyard. Afterwards we will be moving as a group to the Cohen Studio for a drawing activity. In terms of materials for tomorrow — please make sure that each wheel barrow group has a pair of scissors to cut the plastic wrap for covering your wheel barrows. You do not need to bring anything for the drawing activity. We will be providing materials. However, you will be getting messy to please dress appropriately.
Below is information regarding Which class group you have been assigned to for the remainder of the semester, Where your class meets tomorrow morning and What to bring to class. As always class begins promptly at 8am.
At the bottom of this post are two lists one labeled A Group and the other is labelled B Group. Please find your name and note the following:
A Group: Meets on the main floor of the Cohen Studio for the Drawing: Observation class with Profs. Angie To and Kathy Vajda Please bring your drawing boards, charcoal and kneaded erasers. ** Cohen studio is located behind the Cohen Gallery off of main street.
B Group: Meets in the Harder Hall Studio for Studio:Make with Profs. Jason Green and John Gill. Please bring all items except for paint from the emailed list.

It is the end of a truly wonderful and ambitious week here in Foundations. Our wheelbarrow building and customization workshop, based on Pulled Resources Community Camaro project helped you each develop new technical skills and collaborative methods. Remember that the wheelbarrows will be exhibited at SUNY Geneseo in mid-October, so you have about a month to continue modifying, if you choose. Here are a few photos from the parade (more will be posted soon).
A big thanks to Dan and Thomas for leading us this week!
